Title: Indian FAFDM
Post by: Prabal on June 23, 2012, 09:21:40 AM
This movie must eerily remind forum members of FAFDM..........Amigos, have a look.....

The name of the movie is Khottey Sikkey ( Literal translation: "Counterfeit Coins"). At 2:06, you will see Danny Denzongpa who bears an uncanny resemblance to Lee Van Cleef and generally played villainous roles.....

India has its own share of embarrassing counterfeit westerns.  "Sholay" is the best known feature, though the only parts that shine in the movie are those inspired from American and Spaghetti westerns, otherwise it is an average movie. "Wanted" (*ing Mithun Chakraborty, Tina Munim and Shammi Kapoor) was another early 1980s spaghetti inspired Indian western and has displays some Sergio Leone influence but I am not sure if I can recommend it to the members. The efforts to create a "Curry Western" have been far and few, clunky and half-hearted.

Very right, Rudra. In fact, it is embarassing to see what passes for "good acting" in Indian flms. I am sure you would have seen Joshilay too.  My 0.02$- it is not a classic but watchable in parts.

It's kind of embarrassing to watch.

That's the greatest thing I've seen since the Turkish remake of Star Wars - "Stars War".

It did throw me a bit as I thought the whiskered one was the The Colonel character and the clean shaved was the Indian Indio.

We really needed 2 sets of moustaches to neutralise this confusion, but I should have remembered that in Bollywood MOUSTACHE=BAD.
